Hi I'm Evan

I am the only member that I know of in my entire family. I was baptized June 21st, 2014 and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a HUGEEEE Marvel fan. Especially with the whole cinematic universe going on right now, it's awesome. Did you see Guardians of the Galaxy? Well you should. I'm not too sure what my plan is for college right now. Maybe BYU Provo. My dream college is CalArts but tuition is thirty-thousand a semester. That's no bueno. Some other things that may interest you...I played Robert Martin in The Drowsy Chaperone. That was fun! I got the opportunity to tap dance AND roller skate blindfolded. Good times.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon? I'll just tell you my conversion story: Late November 2013. I recieved a text message on a Saturday night asking if I wanted to go with her to church tommorrow. I was recovering from some past transgressions so I said, "Ah what the heck, I don't have anything to lose." Went to church that Sunday and loved it. I started to meet with the missionaires and I even went to the L.A. Temple Visitor's Center with my friend. Overall, I knew that this gospel was something that had been missing from my life and I wanted to get baptized in January of 2014. Now my parents didn't feel like I was ready yet so they insisted I wait until the first day of summer (June 21st.) I took their word for it and got baptized that beautiful, summer day. It was worth the wait. I've gotten to meet so many amazing people and I'm blessed to have this gospel in my life. It's crazy to look back and see how different my life was without the church and how my life is now. For example, I went from being an explicit, lousy high school student to a clean, hardworking high school student. Serioulsly, my GPA went from a 3.0 to a 4.0 this year. It's awesome! I know this church is the true church of Jesus Christ and I invite you to pray to know that these things are true. Good luck.

How I live my faith

I'm still technically 'the new guy' in my ward so I haven't gotten many opportunities to organize events for the church or anything like that yet. I teach my friends about the gospel at school and I follow God's example.
